Parisa Hariri

Medical Statistician


I am medical statistician at the University of Oxford Vaccine Group in the Department of Paediatrics, since October 2018.

I obtained my PhD in mathematics from the University of Turku, Finland. My previous experience includes working for a pharmaceutical company (CRO) in Finland, specializing on design and analysis of clinical trials. There I was involved in studies in different clinical phases and from various therapeutic areas.

Currently I am working on paediatric TB diagnostic studies, using data from a recently completed study from a collaboration between Harvard Medical School, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Kenyan Ministry of Health. I have direct collaboration with statisticians and epidemiologists from the CDC.

I am also involved in real world data analysis from clinical observational studies and national/international clinical trials of vaccines and infectious diseases.

My research interests include data analysis for paediatrics infectious deceases, diagnostic studies for TB, dose escalation studies to evaluate safety and efficacy of vaccines/drugs in early phases, and preclinical studies for anti-cancer drugs using blind source separation (Nonnegative Matrix Factorization).
